ECCC 2017: Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa & Mico Suayan Join Forces for Bloodshot Salvation #1

In advance of Emerald City Comicon 2017 (ECCC), Valiant has announced Bloodshot Salvation #1 – the FIRST ISSUE of A BLOCKBUSTER NEW ONGOING SERIES coming this September from writer Jeff Lemire and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa and Mico Suayan! A bloody and vengeful new era for Bloodshot begins this fall as Ray Garrison escapes his violent past to build the one thing he never thought he’d earn: a family. But when a hateful secret from his true love’s past threatens their fragile peace, Bloodshot will be forced to run headlong into a barrage of blood, bullets, and broken bones for a revenge-fueled assault that will have crushing consequences for those he holds most dear…

Set in two timelines – the present day (with art by LaRosa) and the future (with art by Suayan) –  Jeff Lemire’s epic saga begins anew in Bloodshot Salvation #1! Plus: The introduction of a major new force in the Valiant pantheon starts here as Bloodshot’s daughter, Jessie, makes her milestone first appearance after an initial cameo in the Valiant: X-O Manowar FCBD Special, arriving in stores this Free Comic Book Day!

Now: In the arms of his beloved girlfriend Magic, Bloodshot has finally found hope for the future…in the form the couple’s unborn child. But when Magic’s estranged family – a cruel and sadistic clan of white supremacist criminals – re-emerge to lay claim to their lost daughter, Bloodshot will be pushed back to the brink of madness, mayhem, and warfare…

Soon: Eight years from today, Bloodshot’s daughter has inherited her father’s incredible abilities. Hunted by a high-tech kill squad called Omen, Jessie must hone her powers…and learn how to survive before the world is swallowed whole by the darkness that now pervades America…
